Open Positions

Important Information for Applicants

  • The number of open positions varies from year to year. When you apply, you are not applying for a specific position. Qualified applicants are entered into a hiring pool that is available to all hiring units with open positions. Units may be looking for specific skill sets and qualifications, but they can review applications from all disciplines.
  • Do not make direct contact with faculty or staff to inquire about vacant positions, or submit application materials to the department.  Direct contact with departments in an effort to obtain a position is strictly prohibited.  Repeated attempts to persuade faculty or staff to interview or select you leave a very negative impression and may result in removal of your applicant file from the applicant pool.
  • This program is very competitive and applying does not guarantee an interview, nor does interviewing guarantee an offer.  All selections must be approved by the department, Dean’s/unit head’s office, the Provost’s Office, and the Access for Equal Opportunity Office before a formal offer of employment can be extended and a contract executed.


If you apply during the 2021-2022 academic year and are not selected to fill an assistantship position, you do not need to reapply to be considered for assistantships that will be filled for the 2022-2023 academic year (starting August 16, 2022). If your resume, goal statement or reference letters are over 18 months old, please send updated documents to

Resume and/or goal statement updates may be made once per semester.
